By Prof. Mackey Hill 

Military action in Korea, during 
the summer and early autumn has 
had one competitor for making 
headlines and that has been the 
doings of tne Security Council of 
the United Nations at Lake Suc- 
cess, New York. 

Some six months after Russia 
took her walk from the Security 
Council the Communist Koreans 
drove across the 38th parallel— 
the agreed dividing line that separ- 
ates North and South Korea. It 
came on an early Sunday morn- 
ing— -July 25— with the invaders 
assaulting at eleven points with 
tanks, planes and heavy artillery. 
With this advantage of heavy mil- 
itarized with striking units against 
them the ensuing action was one 
of continuous netreat for the South 

These hostilities shocked the 
world to attention. In Russia's ab- 
sence the Security Council took 
action in the form of resolutions. 
Blame was pinned on the North 
Koreans for breaking the peace 
and menacing international secur- 
ity. Members of the U.N. were 
urged not to support the North 
Koreans and later South Koreans 
were promised the support of mem- 
bers of the UN in the task of 
throwing out the aggressor and 
bringing peace. 

President Truman ordered the 
V S. air and sea forces to support 
the South Korean troops. Not- 
withstanding all this the weeks 
that followed were ones of defeat 
and retreat for South Korea and 
her United Nations supporters. 
Finally, a line was stabilized fair- 
ly well in the southeastern corner 
of Korea. Here a beach head for 
future action was maintained. 

In the meantime, Russia resum- 
ed her place on the Security Coun- 
cil in August, and Malik, the Rus- 
sian delegate, proceeded to use the 
position of president of the coun- 
cil us a means of propaganda. He 
thwarted any successful settle- 
ment of the Korean question but 
did his best to tag the South Kor- 
eans and the supporting U.S. and 
U.N. forces as aggressors and im- 
perialists. But Malik met his match 
in the U.S. delagate, Warren Aus- 
tin, who kept the spotlight on Rus- 
sia's role in promoting the North 
Korean aggressions and covering 
it up. 

Six Per Cent Gain 
Above Last Year 
Noted by Registrar 

With a six per cent increase 
over last semester, the enrollment 
of George Fox college for this first 
semester has reached 136. 

Second on:y to one freshman 
group of past years, the freshmen 
this semester boast a membership

the seniors with twenty-two mem- 

One post-graduate student has 
registered for this semester along 
with seven special students. 

Besides the Friends denomina- 
tion, fourteen other churches are 
represented at George Fox this 
year. The Friends denomination 
was listed by 106 students as the 
church of their choice. 

Five students gave the Free 
Methodist church as their prefer- 
ence, while the Nazarene denomin- 
ation has two representatives. The 
United Presbyterian and the Meth- 
odist churches are preferred by 
four students. 

Three pointed out that the Bap- 
tist group was their choice and the 
Evangelical United Brethren 
church was listed by four students. 
The Southern Baptist, Episcopal, 
Brethren, Christian, Presbyterian, 
Assembly of God, United Mission- 
ary, and Christian Fellowship 
groups were each listed by one 
student as their church. Four did 
not state their denomination.

New Courses Offered at George Fox 
By Three Instructors for First Time 

Five new subjects in two fields 
are being offered at George Fox 
college this year for the , first 

In the field of psychology and 
education, Professor Paul McNeely 
is teaching a course in adolescent 
psychology, which deals with the 
growth and development of the 
adolescent. It is open only to jun-

Interests of New GFC Instructors 

Five new faculty members from 
various parts of the United States 
have joined the administrative 

staff of George Fox college for the 
coming year. The Crescent pre- 
sents a sketch of each of these in 
order that you might become bet-

GFC. A picture of Professor Ken- 
ny was not available at this time. 

From high school track events to 
becoming Dean of George Fox col- 
lege, Professor Donald McNichols' 
primary interest has been in the 
field of literature. In addition to 
his duties as Dean, Professor Mc- 
Nichols is Professor of English at 
GFC this year. 

Prof. McNichols' hobbies and 
interests center in research in Ren- 
aissance religious works. He is al- 
so interested in early American 
writers of Quaker influence. At 
Los Angeles Pacific college, Prof. 
McNichols received an A.B. de-

Expresses High Expectancy for Revival 

"That's my work — starting new 
churches," says Frederick Belmont 
Baker, evangelist for the fall re-

Seniors of 1954 
Become Oriented 

September 15, 1950, saw the 
class of 1954 arriving on the 
George Fox college campus with 
fifty-three members. 

For the first time, the freshman 
orientation program was organiz- 
ed so that the new students might 
take their tests, become acquaint- 
ed with each other and with the 
campus before the upperclassmen 

Beginning Saturday morning, 
September 16, the freshmen were 
introduced to the faculty members 
and welcomed to the school by 
student body president, Wayne 
Piersall. Along with English tests, 
the group was told of various 
phases of George Fox college as 
well as taken on a campus tour. 

The Newberg Friends church on 
Sunday gave a special welcome to 
the new college students. 

Together with more entrance 
tests on Monday, the group was 
given pointers on how to plan 
their study time and about some 
of the courtesies connected with 
college left. To include the orien- 
tation, physical examinations were 
given all freshmen on Monday eve-

McNichols Tells Plans 
Of Arranging New Club 

A literary organization for Eng- 
lish majors, potential English ma- 
pjars, and others interested in lit- 
erature, is being arranged, accord- 
ing to Dean McNichols. 

Preparations are being made for 
the first meeting to be held with- 
in the next few weeks, announced 
Dr. McNichols. After organizing, 
meetings will probably be once 
every two months. 

One of the main projects of the 
organization will be to put out a 
literary publication some time next 
spring. Various activities are be- 
ing planned for the meetings, 
among them speakers and group 
participation programs. 

a real moving of the spirit of God 
in our midst." 

Mr. Baker states that he feels 
the theme of this week's meetings 
in the chapel of George Fox college 
could be stated in the question, 
"What Is Life?" (James 4:14). 
The services for the week are held 
in the college chapel at 10:30 and 
7:30. On Sunday afternoon, Octo- 
ber 8, will be the last service un- 
less the Lord directs otherwise. 

Born in Tacoma, Washington in 
1904, Mr. Baker attended Cascade 
college from 1928 to 1932 and after 
four years of ministry resumed 
studies, this time at Lewis and 
Clark college in Portland, from 
1936 to 1938. 

Mr. Baker has been preaching 
for twenty years but first became 
widely known in Oregon Yearly 
meeting through evangelistic tours 
in which he was teamed with Ed- 
ward Harmon. Beginning in 1932 
they held meetings for two years

Delaware, Ohio. 

Student Activities 
Started by Mixer, 
Ended by Reception 

Beginning the all-student acti- 
vities of the first week of school 
was the student mixer held on 
Tuesday evening, September 19. 

Gene Mulkey, social chairman of 
the student body, was in charge of 
the evening's activities, which were 
planned with i the idea that every- 
one become better acquainted. Af- 
ter the group games, which were 
played on the lawn, a marshmallow 
roast was held. To conclude the 
evening, Nigel Shockey gave a 
devotional thought. 

Planned by the Student Chris- 
tian Union YW chairman, Jean- 
nette Saucy,' the big-little sister 
picnic was held at Avalon park 
between Newberg and Portland, on 
Thursday evening, September 21. 
After playing games, boating, and 
eating, the "big" sisters introduc- 
ed their "litttle" sisters, before 
Margaret Shattuck brought the 
devotions which ended the eve- 

While the girls were at the pic- 
nic, the GFC men were entertain- 
ed at the Stag Mix in charge of 
the YM chairman. 

The formal reception held on 
Friday evening for the purpose of 
honoring new students and facul- 
ty members climaxed the first- 
week activities. Arleta Wright,

Welcome, New Friends 

To those of you, both stu- you have begun to share the 

dents and faculty, who are 
new to George Fox college this 
year, we former students and 
teachers say, "Welcome". 

You have been a part of our 
"campus family" for three 
weeks now and we sincerely 
trust that already you feel as 
though you. "belong". Not 
only do we desire your friend- 
ship and help in the fellow- 
ship and social life of the col- 
lege, but also in the spiritual 
realm. It is our prayer that 

responsibility of carrying the 
burdens — for the school and 
for lost schools — that other 
teachers and students have 

We like you, new friends, 
and we are so thankful for the 
privilege of knowing you. May 
God use us this year as we 
work together with a unity 
anc}, common bond that only 
Christ can bring about.

Bewildered Sophomore Speaks 

Yes, I'm a student from last 
year. I guess you would be 
interested in some campus ac- 
tivities, wouldn't you ? . . . Oh, 
you took Freshman Orienta- 
tion ? . . . Well, since you just 
arrived, I . . . what? You've 
been here a week? . . . Well 
then . . . uh . . . 

I talked a few more min- 
utes with the new student 
and then proceeded on down 
the walk, only to meet a large 
group of more new faces. 
They were busily discussing 
their classes and what they 
were planning to do that eve- 
ning. Stuttering a little I 
spoke and then hurried on. As 
I walked I noticed a similar 
group approaching. Again 
the embarrassing moment 
passed and suddenly. . . Oh 
joy!! . . .a student from last 
year!! We talked for several 
minutes on old times, but the 
subject of new students soon 

came up. It was just then I 
really began to realize what 
new personalities and talents 
we are blessed with this year. 

Each new person coming to 
GFC has something they can 
offer to the college and each 
returning student has an op- 
portunity to offer himself in 
service to new friends as well 
as last year's acquaintances. 

So, Newcomer, if a bewild- 
ered upperclassman comes 
your way and shyly asks, 
"Uh, excuse me, what's your 
name?" be patient and friend- 
ly. Try to make them feel at 
home. After all, they need 
your help to adjust to this . 
the coming year at GFC, and 
to make it the most success 
ful and wonderful year be- 
cause of You and You and 
You — returning students and 
newcomers alike. 

— F.P. 


The opening day of school found a number of Friends pas- 
tors gathered in from the nearer quarterly meetings. These 
pastors held a special prayer meeting before chapel time and 
sat on the platform of the college to welcome the new student 
body. After chapel service the visiting ministers took lunch 
with the students in the dining hall. It was decided that each 
month of the school year there will be a special meeting for 
prayer of all ministers of the yearly meeting who are able to 

George Fox college is very grateful for an increase in our 
student body over last semester. This is opposite to the cur- 
rent trend among colleges, and although the increase is small, 
we consider it a definite indication of God's blessing upon us 
and are thankful for answers to the prayers of God's children. 
The incoming group of students has shown a high interest in 
Christian living and faith. A senior returning this year re- 
marked that she had never seen so much fine character exhibit- 
ed among new students as was observed this year. The lives 
of our young people have balance and purpose. They are enter- 
ing into the school year with a conscious expectancy that they 
may grow spiritually and in knowledge. 

Our week of religious services conducted by Fred Baker is 
under way and the results are gratifying. A large number of 
young people have renewed their covenant with God or have 
in prayer gained a clearer knowledge of Divine peace. The school 
is continually receiving answers to prayer which marks God's 
favor to us. The entire fuel supply of 52 cords for Wood-Mar 
hall was graciously donated at the beginning of school. At 
present the installation of an adequate heating plant is in 
progress and is a subject of much prayer that we may have 
equipment adequate for our future needs. 

A cooperative attitude is manifested among the students. 
This is inspiring indeed as we take forward- steps in raising our 
scholastic standards. Dean McNichols is directing the faculty 
in the strengthening of each major course offered in order that 
it may conform to the standards of state universities. A slight 
increase in dining hall costs was a necessity with the present 
index of wholesale prices. We are at present able to provide 
excellent food for our students at $8 per weekr. George Fox 
college continues to need funds for scholarships awarded to 
worthy students. Some students with highest aptitudes find it 
necessary to earn almost all of their school expenses while in 
school. Various churches have enabled, individual students to 
come here this year. For this we are grateful. The $25 Club 
subscriptions (better known as the Living Endowment) has 
had a splendid response since Yearly Meeting time. 

♦Although to human beings the stress of national affairs 
seems to rest heavily upon human hearts, there are no times 
or seasons which are difficult to God. The revival spirit across 
our nation is consciously felt by multitudes of people. The 
greatest American investment today is prayer and sacrifice 
for Christ and His church. The young people of George Fox 
college are coming to learn why they are Christian and will be 
able to give a reason for the hope that is within them. We ex- 
pect this year that our students will accept responsibility and 
thoughtfully approach the task of living with a confidence 
born of Christian faith.

Travelling over an estimated 6,- 
000 miles during the summer in 
the interests of George Fox col-

body president. 

He visited ten different summer 
camps, taking charge of the meet- 
ings in some places and presenting 
the college program with the aid 
of a slide projector, the L'Ami and 
other publications of the college. 

Among the camp meetings 
Wayne visited were the Star Holi-

County camp in Portland, and the 
Pierce County Holiness Camp 

meeting in Tacoma. Also he visit-

est Holiness camp in the northwest 
which is located in northern Wash- 
ington, near the Canadian border. 

At these camps, along with 
Wauna Mer and Sa-Wa-Li-Nais 
Friends conferences, Wayne spoke 
to the young people and had op- 
portunities to help with the music. 
He also had services in individual 

During the Billy Graham cam- 
paign in Portland, Wayne had 
charge of handing out folders, 
which advertised GFC, to the 
young people after the services at 
various times. This was done in 
order that people around Portland 
might become acquainted with 
George Fox college.

Musical Program Given 
By New Faculty Adviser 

Election of officers and a musi-

of the Trefian tea held on Thurs-

Classes Begin Year; 
Elect New Officers 

The school officially began for 
each class as officers were elected, 
following chapel on Tuesday, Sep- 
tember 26. 

The seniors chose Fred Little- 
field to be their leader for the 
coming year. Fred, who previously 
attended Friends Bible college in 
Haviland, Kansas, is a music ma- 
jor. Norma Dillorf, also L'Ami ed- 
itor for this year, will assist Fred 
as vice-president and social chair- 
man. She is a member of the choir 
and comes from Haviland, Kansas. 

Margaret Dixon and Hal May 
will be the secretary and treasurer, 
respectively, for the seniors. Prof. 
Don McNichols was selected as 
their adviser. 

Howard Harmon, from Tacoma, 
Washington, will lead the juniors 
this year. Howie is a Bible major 
and is studying for the ministry. 
The juniors selected Larry Wy- 
man, from Homedale, Idaho, to be 
their vice-president. Gay Foley 
will be secretary while Floyd Cole- 
man is the junior treasurer. So- 
cial chairman is Bethlin Judd. 

Crescent sports editor, Bob 
Saucy, will head the sophomores 
while Melda Chandler from 
Sprague River, Oregon, is vice- 
president. Lucille Lewis and Har- 
ry Ryan will be secretary and 
treasurer. Florence Price is to 
have charge of all sophomore social 
functions as the social chairman. 

Nigel Shockey, who is from 
Sweet Home, Oregon, is freshman 
president. Jim Higgins was chos- 
en as vice-president. The freshmen 
will elect the rest of their officers

More Work Orders 
Cause Student Aid 
To Be Increased 

■As chairman of the student aid, 
work and housing committee of the 
faculty, Professor Roy Knight an- 
nounced that this year the student 
aid has been increased because 
more students are petitioning for 

Since there are so many students 
desiring work on the campus, most 
of the work projects will be car- 
ried on by the students. However, 
because of an increased number 
of working students, this necessi- 
tates less work per person. 

Most of the work of putting in 
the new heating plant is being 
done by students. However, since 
the State Safety Code requires the 
use of a certified welder for all 
steam equipment, the welding is 
being done by a firm in Salem.

Marvin G. Baker, who has spent 
many years developing his inter- 
ests and abilities in music, his prin- 
cipal teaching assignment here at 
George Fox college. 

Mr. Baker graduated from Mar- 
ion college, Marion, Indiana, in 
1941, with a Bachelor of Religion 
degree. He later obtained from 
that school a B.S. in education, 
with majors in English and music. 

Baker, whose wife is also an 
alumnus' of Marion college, has at- 
tended Pacific Bible college in 
Azusa, California, Bethel college in 
Mishauaka, Indiana, and has done 
graduate work at Ball State col- 
lege, Munice, Indiana. He has had 
teaching experience at Andrews 
high school in Indiana, where he 
worked in both the music and Eng- 
lish departments. 

Professor Baker, an ordained el- 
der in the Wesleyan Methodist 
church, has also had experience in 
the pulpit. He has held pastorates 
In Huntington, Indiana and in 
Dowagiac, Michigan. At the pres- 
ent time he is serving as minis- 
ter of music at the Free Metho- 
dist church in Newberg. 

Another GFC responsibility that 
Mr. Baker has is "governing" 
Hoover hall, where he occupies an 
apartment with his family. Be- 
sides his wife, his family includes 
a 16-months-old daughter, Evan- 

When asked what his hobbies 
were or what he did in his "spare 
time", Mr. Baker chuckled, "I en- 
joy dramatics, music theory, and 
composition, when I do have spare 
time." A more serious tone was 
employed when describing some 
particular impression of GFC. "I 
have been greatly impressed by the 
cooperativeness among students, 
particularly among the fellows of 

Hoover hall," he said. 

"Music is one of the best things 
on which to build a community" is 
the theory of Mrs. Lydia McNich- 
ols, instructor in music and voice 
at George Fox college this year. 

Music in the church and in the 
community is one of her main in- 
terests. She was a member of the 
board of directors that formed the 
Highland Park Symphony in Los 

Primarily she Is interested in 
caring for her home and three- 
year-old son, Melvin. These duties 
occupy most of her time when she 
is not actually teaching. 

Mrs. McNichols graduated from 
high school and received an A.A. 
degree at Wessington Springs col- 
lege, Wessington Springs, South 
Dakota. In Seattle Pacific college 
she received a B.S. degree with a 
major in mathmatics. * 

Mr. George Kenny, new science 
professor at GFC, comes with high 
recommendation from southern 
California, where he has been do- 
ing graduate work in physics. He 
expects to receive his Ph.D. in 
physics, with a minor in mathe- 
matics, from the California Insti- 
tute of Technology in Pasadena in 
June of 1951. He received his B.S. 
just ten years prior to this from 
Seattle Pacific college. 

Mr. Kenny, along with his fam- 
ily, has not yet settled permanent- 
ly in Newberg, but is contemplat- 
ing buying a house near the

Uncle Dudley Soon to Receive Letter; 
Orchestra Highlights College for Nephew 

Dear Uncle Dudley: 

I have been here in school for 
three weeks and have neglected 
writing to you until now. Last 
week I wept to a football game 
and came to a realization of how 
badly our college needs money. 
The two teams together only had 
one ball and were always fighting 
over it. First one team and then 
the other would tip to run away 
the other would try to run away 
onto the man with the ball. I am 
about to start a fund to buy some 
more footballs so they won't have 
to fight over one. 

The other night in the library 
the people observed thirty seconds 
of complete silence. I finally fig- 
ured that it was in recognition of 
the fact that in a weak moment a 
student had started to study. It 
also might have been that they, 
too, had become interested in their 
studies, or because only one per- 
son was in the building. 

I still have blisters on my feet 
from following the process of the 
freshman fall festival. I had to 
put the ice cream into my shoes to 
make them stop hurting. It didn't 
help much because they gave me 
some "Rocky Road." 

We all eat in the dining hall and 
I have observed that when we have 
soup there are several personalities 
which become apparent. There is 
the type that makes like a vacuum 
cleaner, there are the people who 
slurp only slightly and those who 
don't eat soup. 

The other night I had a slight- 
ly different experience than usual 
and here it is. 

I was awakened by the small 
bits of plaster that were dropping 
onto m yface. The gentle jerking 
and swaying of the bed caused a 
small shiver of fear to run down 
my back; then as I became wide 
awake I could smell the dense 
smoke that was clouding the room, 
and my pulse dropped to its nor- 
mal two hundred beats because 
then I knew that things were go- 
ing as usual in old Hoover hall. 

The noise suddenly subsided to 
the gentle sounds of a burning dy- 
namite factory and for a moment 
peace and quiet pervaded the dorm 
and the only things you could hear 
were some eight or ten radios turn- 
ed as loud as they would go. The 
door to my room suddenly opened 
and as it dangled by one loose 
hinge, my roommate fell sprawling 
through the doorway. He gasped 
out, "Hot Music", and then his 
eyes crossed, his face turned purple 
and his body went limp. I could 
detect that something was wrong 
with him. I threw a bucket of 
water into his face and then ap- 
plied artificial respiration to keep 
him from drowning. 

In spite of this he soon revived 
and gasped out this story: 

"We, the members of 'Musicians 
Anonymous' were holding a meet- 
ing in the interests of better music 
( ? ) . Our orchestra had just gone 
through the preliminary tuning up 
on the stage of room twenty-three

jumped on Howie's bed and it col- 
lapsed; it was quite a let down. 
The orchestra was nonplussed 
however, and played 'Woodsaw 
Concherto', 'Floor Dust Rhapsody', 
and 'Headcracker Sweet' with a 
football theme. 

"After these beautiful numbers 
the string quartet composed of one 
radio, one snare drum, a pair of 
shoes being pounded on the wall, 
and several people who played on 
the floor, performed. They played 
the Fields' fifth sonata which no 
one had ever heard before. Then 
the orchestra, directed by Jack 
Snow and 'Sigh' Puckett, played 
two or three more numbers. 

"About this time the group was 
addressed by Mr. Baker on the 
subject of 'Music when it is most 
and least appreciated' with a few 
comments on an anti-noise ordin- 
ance. After this the meeting ad- 

After this lengthy speech my 
roommate took off one shoe, turn- 
ed down the top blanket of his bed 
and crawled under it, the bed that 
is, and soon was snoring lustily. I 
could see that he had fully recov- 
ered and soon did likewise. 

I have enjoyed this much of col- 
lege and think I will like it better 
when I learn to read.

New Co-op to Include

To be opened soon will be the col- 
lege co-op, after having been re- 
modeled and enlarged to include 
a book store and snack bar. 

The co-op is located in the base- 
ment of Hoover hall. The stair- 
way to the basement has been re- 
moved and the dark room trans- 
ferred to the science building to 
make room for the enlarged store. 

A stock of supplies and college 
books will be for sale at the store 
in addition to ice cream, soft 
drinks and coffee. 

Annual Silver Tea 
Given as Benefit 

The women's auxiliary of George 
Fox college is sponsoring on Fri- 
day, October 13, in Kanyon hall 
parlor, a silver tea from 2:30 to 
4:30 p. m. • 

The auxiliary, among other serv- 
ices, annually gives a benefit pro- 
gram for the college. Anyone who 
is interested in the college is in- 
vited to attend the tea. 

The speaker for the tea will be 
Kay West (Mrs. Glenna Kneeland) 
of KEX radio fame in Portland. 
Miss West broadcasts daily her 
own radio program, "At Home 
With Kay West," which is a gen- 
eral program especially from the 
woman's viewpoint. 

Japanese, American Education, Food 
Different, Says Yasuko Mayekawa 

From Tokyo, Japan, to the fresh 
man class of George Fox college 
comes Yasuko Mayekawa. 

Yasuko arrived here just before 
registration, following an ocean 
voyage from Yokahama to San 
Francisco, which she described 
with the words, "I got seasick 
three days." Here in Newberg she 
is living with Mr. and Mrs. J. G. 
Martin. Mrs. Martin's brother, 
Floyd Schmoe, influenced Yasuko 
to come to GFC while he was do- 
ing reconstruction work in Japan. 

Yasuko noted that over here the 
college students could obtain work 
to aid them through college and 
attend class at the same time, 
which is much harder to do in 
Japan. In Japan, she explained, 
many students had to terminate 
their education in order to work 
as part-time employment was al- 
most completely unavailable. She 
previously attended Jiyu Gakueu, 

Chevron Station 





John's Ice Cream 

meaning a school of freedom. 

Our foods she finds similar to 
that in Japan, although bread and 
meat here were too expensive to 
eat often. "I like bread better than 
rice", she emphasized. 

A major in history is Yasuko's 
present ambition, with a career 
working on a publishing magazine 
in Tokyo following that. She did 
similar work for a year and a half 
just previous to her coming to 
America. She has a three-year 
passport and plans to attend some 
other schools while here. 

Yasuko has taken English for 
four years in high school and 
speaks quite fluently. When asked 
if she enjoyed her studies, she an- 
swered, "Yes, but it's hard work." 
She likes her teachers and appre- 
ciates the friendly atmosphere of 
the campus.

Costa Rica Work 
Found Enriching 
By GFC Instructor 

"My summer spent in the Latin 
American countries was a most 
enriching experience," declared 
Miss Lucy Clark, instructor in the 
English and dramatics depart- 
ments of George Fox college, after 
spending the summer in Costa 

She went on to say, "To see how 
people in other countries live and 
to see the problems that our mis- 
sionaries are facing daily make one 
realize how great the task of evan- 
gelization really is." 

Miss Clark left Los Angeles on 
June 11, and flew by the way of 
Pan American to Costa Rica. On 
the way to the field, she was priv- 
ileged to visit the National Holi- 
ness Missionary society work in 
Tegucigalpa, Honduras, which is 
under the direction of college 
friends, Rev. Authur and Doris 
Vesper. Upon arrival in San Jose, 
capital of Costa Rica, she was met 
by more friends, Rev. and Mrs. 
Powel Royster, who are in charge 
of the Methodist mission there. 
Slimmer Work Varied 

According to Miss Clark, her 
work throughout the summer was 
varied. Part of her time was spent 
in substitute teaching in the Meth- 
odist school, which included the 
kindergarten to the tenth grade. 
She also helped organize the school 
annual, directed a play for the 
school, and helped with the music 
in the English school which is for 
all denominations. The junior 
church on Sunday mornings, direct- 
ing Happy Hour for boys and girls 
on Sunday afternoons, singing in 
the Spanish choir, tutoring one 
student, and sponsoring three mis- 
sionary trips required the rest of 
her time. 

Miss Clark found the people to 
be most hospitable and friendly. 
Although she was handicapped by 
meager Spanish vocabulary, she 
made many friends among the 
Costa Rican people. 
Many Christian Believers 

When questioned about the re- 
ligion of that country, Miss Clark 
pointed out that there were many 
Christian believers around San 
Jose. However, the general trenc 
of the people is largely Catholic 
with much superstition. The Cath 
olics oppose very strongly the oth 
er denominations. 

On the way back to Oregon, Mis; 
Clark was thrilled to be able t 
visit the Chiquimula Friends mi£ 
sion in Guatemala that is unde

he wants. He enjoys blowing his 
own horn.

A Bit 
About Bootball 

Football is a very spuff roart, 
and takes men with lurdy stegs, 
rolled in George Fox this year, 
sometimes results in noaken 
broazes an harley chorses and of- 
ten leaves the player in a kate of 
temporary stoama, necessitating 
his being ferried from the stretld 
on a ketch. Therefore such thulky 
bings — and I'm npt crozing about 
Speakby — as poadler-shads and 
other perittctive prophernalia are 
required to a bumpimum. 

The plame is gayed on a grid 
called a field-iron and the rawl, in- 
stead of being bound like a soap- 
subble, is shoavel-aipt, lie an egg- 
in's rob, so it will kounce bock- 
eyed and plool the fayers. 

When the whifferee's wrestle 
blows, the stay plarts, and when it 
blows again, stay ploys. The whole 
idea is for one team to make a 
skigger boar than the other, and 
the one with the pewest loints 

If you wish detther furtails, con-

George Fox Downs 
Clark Junior Team 
With 14-0 Score 

A spectacular ball-stealing feat 
by Marion Clarkson highlighted 
the play as George Fox downed 
Clark Junior college JV's 14-0 at 
Vancouver, Washington, Septem- 
ber 29. 

Clarkson, 165 pound left end, 
charged in as the Clark quarter- 
back faded to pass, snatched the 
ball from his hand, and raced 55 
yards to paydirt before the be- 
wildered opponents hardly knew 
what had happened. 

George Fox started strong, tak- 
ing the ball on their own 35 and 
marching 65 yards to score in 12 
plays. Nothing outstanding was 
displayed; just steady football 
with Dick Beebe and Jim Higgins, 
halfback, taking the ball in hand- 
offs from quarterback Howie Har- 
mon and crashing into the line. 
Fullback Nigel Shockey, carrying 
the ball for the first time in col- 
lege competition, made a splendid 
start by banging over from the 
six. Harmon converted on a quar- 
terback sneak and the Quakers 
led, 7-0. 

Throughout the remainder of 
the first half the local squad con- 
tinued to have things their own 
way, but couldn't keep a drive go- 
ing long enough to score. Pushing 
inside the Clark 30 yard line on 
three occasions, the visitors piled 
up 123 yards rushing in the first 
half while holding the home team 
to a net gain of only nine. 

Early in the third period Clark- 
son executed the aforementioned 
play. The Quaker end stated later 
that he should have stopped and 
thanked the Clark boy for handing 
him the ball, but he was so sur- 
prised by it all that he just ran 
for a touchdown. Beebe added the 
extra point on an end ran to put 
the locals out in front 10-4. 

During the rest of the game 
Coach Bales substituted freely, let- 
ting inexperienced men get into 
the lineup. Neither team made a 
threat until the waning seconds of 
play when the Quakers drove to 
the 18. 

Line play was especially out- 
standing, with the victors holding 
the losing team in their own ter- 
ritory througout the game. Only 
twice did they cross the midfield 
stripe and never advanced beyond 
the 35. Most outstanding back- 
field man was probably Dick Bee- 
be who carried for 111 of his team 
total of 210 yards rushing. 

Before the game, Pete Fertello, 
tackle, and Dick Beebe, halfback, 
were elected co-captains for the

Mr. Pigskin is again on the 
throne at George Fox college. Al- 
though kicked and thrown, he is 
there to stay until the final game

eyes of the old 

In the win 
column after 
their first game 
with the Clark 
Junior college JV's, the Quaker 
crew is digging in for the crucial 
tilt coming up with Lewis and 
Clark JV's. The Balesmen of 
course will be out for the second 
win of the current season and also 
the second straight over the Port- 
land outfit. Last year's was a 19-7 
win on Homecoming Day. 

The Pioneers will be rooting for 
a redemption themselves and by 
the looks of their lineup, they will 
be hard to stop. With the varsity 
packing depth and experience in 
all positions there is plenty of ma- 
terial to field a rough JV team. 
Whether it's rough enough to beat 
a fighting Quaker eleven, or not, 
can only be told next Saturday af- 

Although losing some of his best 
talent through graduation, trans- 
fer, etc., Coach Bales is all smiles 
over the incoming freshman. Def- 
initely a good class for the foot- 
ball department, the freshmen 
boast twelve of the twenty-seven 
out for the sport. And half of 
these are backs, blessing the divi 
sion that was left shy at the close 
of school. Most of these talented 
newcomers come with good high 
school experience which, if they 
stay together, should blossom into 
a rugged combination.

Local Gridders 
Anxiously Await 
Monmouth Game 

Coach Bales and his football 
team are anxiously awaiting the 
"big" game of the season, Octo- 
ber 14. This contest will feature 
the local squad against strong Ore- 
gon College of Education, at Mon- 

Last year the opponents predict- 
ed a score so large it would take 
an adding machine to count it. 
When the final gun barked, the 
Quakers felt they had seized a real 
victory by holding the vaunted 
Monmouth to a 20-0 win. 

of the cancellation of the Reed 
game scheduled for last Saturday. 
Why was this necessary? Well, it 
seems that the Griffin football sea- 
son got off to a slow start. And 
after it did get started there was 
such little interest shown that it 
was doubtful as to whether they 
would be able to field a team. 
Fortunately they were and the tra- 
ditional rivalry can continue. 

Speaking of interest there are 
few schools, if any, that can best 
our own GFC — twenty-seven out 
of approximately one hundred and 
twenty students. Coach George 
Bales has a right to be proud of 
such an active sports department. 

With an initial enrollment of a 
dozen more or less manly boys, 
the men's physical education class 
of this year is shaping up. Under 
the able guidance of "Professor" 
Gerald Lemmons, the intricacies of 
the fundamentals of basketball will 
be thrown at his victim, as well as 
some fair weather sports, when 
and if there is any fair weather. 

This program, along with the us- 
ual dosage of horseplay and joke 
telling, should bring a good year 
for the not-so-sporty PE'ers. 

Dormitory Leaders 
Selected for Year 

Leaders have been elected to 
serve throughout the year in the 
three dormitories, Edwards, Kan- 
yon and Hoover. 

Donna Jefferson, junior, was se- 
lected to guide the girls of Ed- 
wards hall. Her council is compos 
ed of Marynette Smith, vice-pres> 
ident; Alice Hodson, secretary 
and Melda Chandler, treasurer. 

The presidency of Kanyon hall is 
filled by Gladys Engle, senior. 
Martha Lemmons serves as vice- 
president, while Bethlin Judd, sec- 
retary; Nancy Foley, treasurer/ 
and Margaret Weber, fire marshal, 
complete the roll of officers. 

Senior Dick Beebe and his as- 
sistant, Nigel Shockey, lead the 
Hoover hall men; Larry Wyman 
does the secretarial and financial 
duties; and Keith Puckett serves 
as sergeanta-at-arms.

newcomers ro urv rigsiun Eleven 
Expected to Double for Past Lettermen 

With only ten lettermen return- 
ing, Coach George Bales will have 
to rely heavily on the new mater- 
ia] for those winning yards. Al- 
though the veterans will no doubt 
bear the brunt of the chores, the 
freshman footballers are expected 
to come in extremely handy to the 
Quaker crew. 

In order to become acquainted 
with the newcomers to the GFC 
team, a brief sketch of each will 
be given. 

Dick Zeller, freshman, 210 pound 
tackle, hails from Salem, Oregon. 
With his four years of high school 
ball at the Salem Academy, Dick 
should make a rugged boy for the 
Quaker eleven. 

Jim Higgins, freshman, 170, 
back, brings two years of football 
from Parkdale high school, Park- 
dale, Oregon. Jim is making a 

real bid for a steady slot at th« 
halfback position. 

Keith, 'Cy" Puckett, freshman 
220, guard, comes from Greenleaf 
Idaho. Keith has played no higt 
school ball, but has had four year: 
of it playing for the Victor, Mon- 
tana grade school, which can be 
mighty rough. Keith will ado 
weight and power to the GFC line 
Glen Livingston .freshman, 165 
back, from Woodby Island, Wash 
ington, played halfback for Lang 
ley high school two years. Glen ii 
another back who should see mucl 
work in his college days. 

Gene Brown,, freshman, mgr. oi 
1950 George Fox crew is not to b< 
outdone in the experience depart 
ment. Having managed his higl 
school team at Shedd, Oregon, foi 
three years, Gene knows his waj 
around in the cage. 

Coach Bales Experiments With Lineup 
Of GFC Gridsters for Coming Game 

Coach George Bales has been ex- 
perimenting with some changes 
in the lineup of his gridmen as he 
is pointing the squad for the Lewis 
and Clark JV game October 7 at 
2 p. m. on the home field. 

If plans don't change, Marion 
Clarkson, left end, will be switch- 
ed to the left half slot in both of- 
fense and defense. To take his 
place, Cliff Ralphs will transfer 
to end, with DeForrest (Woody) 
Fletcher filling his center position. 
Dick Beebe will be moved from de- 
fensive line back to halfback 
and Keith Puckett will take over 
defensive right end duties. These 
changes are to form an attack 
with more punch which will keep 
going when deep in enemy terri- 
tory. The defensive changes are 
to strengthen pass defense which 
was the Quakers' biggest weak- 
ness in their opener. If this defen- 
sive line is used, it will average an 

even 200 pounds a man. 

Lewis and Clark boasts a tean 
which is capable of scoring at ani 
time. Two light, speedy halfbacks 
Ray Shumaker, and Bill Huntlei 
lead the team which will be out ti 
avenge a 19-7 defeat in the Georgi 
Fox Homecoming game last year 

Coach Bales is not making anj 
predictions as to the outcome o 
the game, but he says a close con 
test is expected.

tion met recently and invited all

So it is with the greatest dili- 
gence that the Newberg boys are 
preparing for the game. OCE 
seems to be not quite so strong as 
last season, but will still be a very 
good team. They have lost two 
very close games this year and will 
be hungry for a win. Use of the 
two platoon system will probably f~ 
be in effect, with the object to 
wear the Quakers into submission. 
Early reports are that Robin Lee 
is playing both offense and de- 
fense. Lee, a halfback, wrought
